ORAS PINAS! 2022 National Time Consciousness Week
DID YOU KNOW? Atomic cesium clocks are the most accurate clocks in the world today, telling time by measuring oscillation of energized atoms in an electromagnetic field.
Three such clocks are installed at the DOST-PAGASA, serving as the basis for the Philippine Standard Time (PhST).
Join us as the Department of Science and Technology leads in the observance of 2022 National Time Consciousness Week from January 1 to 7, 2022 with the slogan, “Bangon Pinas para sa bagong bukas: Sundin ang tamang oras”.
The event aims to advocate the observance of the Philippine Standard Time to help in nation building and to support efforts to achieve sustainable development and inclusive growth.
Head over to the DOST-PAGASA website (http://bagong.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/) and sync your watch to the Philippine Standard Time. DOST-PAGASA is the official timekeeper in the country.

Atomic Energy Week 2021 to brandish the latest in PH nuclear S&T innovations
This year’s celebration of the Atomic Energy Week (AEW) will showcase the latest developments in nuclear science and technology, particularly local researches and technologies that address the current needs in the society, especially in the new normal condition. Now on its 49th year, the AEW will be held on December 6-10 to be led by the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (DOST-PNRI).
With the theme “Agham at Teknolohiyang Pangnukleyar: Tugon sa Hamon ng Panahon”, the annual event will mostly be held online for everyone’s safety as the country transitions to a more relaxed quarantine classification.
Among the most-awaited events in the annual celebration are the nuclear video-making contest, poster-making contest, technology session, virtual tours, and a youth summit. A gamified exhibit is also in the offing to give AEW guests a unique experience in engaging with nuclear scientists and their works.
Among the event’s featured personalities and guests are Filipino scientists, professionals, and policy makers who will join talks and features on the latest nuclear and radiation-related innovations as well as the growing role of nuclear science in the country’s larger development policy.
The AEW 2021 will be held in an easy-to-navigate platform that can be accessed at http://aew.pnri.dost.gov.ph on the opening day. The five-day event will be simulcast across various social media platforms to reach more attendees while ensuring everyone’s safety.
The annual AEW celebration, as mandated under Presidential Proclamation No. 1211 in 1973, aims to generate awareness of the Filipino people on the beneficial uses of nuclear science and technology.
